That sir, was a fantastic reel.

My only comment is that some of the voice clips get cut short by your editing (most notibly the ones with the cupids flying beside the car). I'd also suggest taking out the IK joe tip-toe animations at the end, as they were kinda weak.

5 stars from me for the rest of your work though! This is one of the best animation reels I've seen on the net.

really nice reel man. My favorite part is the IK joe dance with the mic stand , i wish you framed that better , the camera is too far back in that scene.

hi andersonko

very nice reel and excellent animation!

one question: do you know how the elephant water splashes were created? compositing or fluid software? (realflow, inhouse..) they look great!

thanks,
basti

Really good animation reel. I particularly like the elephant and the IK Joe/Fred Astaire dance. Very well done.
I think that the music works well with the flow of the animations.

No crits.

Ohhhh yeahhh....
This is what Im talking about, animation at its best.
I love the dancing IK joe, really well done, nice subtle details.
I also like the dancing elephant (A good friend of mine worked on that same commercial, he is at Blue Sky now, I bet you'll catch up with him after sending this reel, eh? :deal: )

I think, like the rest of the members that the tip-toe Joe is not at the same level and should tip-toe to the editing room. Your stuff is really good and soo much better than that particular piece.

Good luck my friend, good work.

:thumbsup:

Great demo...no doubt. My only crit is the very first image with the pig. While the rest is loading I'm sitting there looking at the weakest image on the reel. Maybe the sketches from the end could be moved to the front...or almost any other image in the reel.

Other than that I want to thank you for the music. Anytime anything makes me think of Joe Vs. the Volcano I'm a happy camper :)

Best of Luck,

Excellent Reel (!!!)

the IK Joe dancing with the pole, is AMAZING!, sometimes it fools you, and it looks like mocap.
the fact that you didnt even rotoscoped only makes it even more amazing... :thumbsup:

I know the elephant from the XSI community... it's excellent as well!

the only thing that bothered me, is at the end, you show the elephant for another second...
I think it would be better without it... looks like the music asked for another cut, and you
didnt have a new thing to fill in, so you used the phant again :scream: ....

anyway , once again this is a 5 stars reel, you got those ***** from me :)

is there a place we can download the dancing ik joe full sequence???

Hi everybody!

I'm really appreciated that you guys like my stuff :)

to fx81!
we acturally went to a animal trainer's place to see how REAL elephant move, then we had dancing reference so we can visualize how elephant going to do. So when we animate elephant we already had the sense of the weight and the move that he is doing.

to 2xbo!
I think for now, I will still keep my stuff this way but in the futuer after I rebuild my site, I will show it in separated too. :)

to basti!
for the water, we comp the real water in, because there is no way we can do cg water :p

to Ranimate!
hehe I know who you are talking about, he is a great animator too and I'm so happy that he is in BS now. Good for him :applause:

to CoolCalb!
I haven't finish my site yet but as soon as I finish, I will put all the spots that I has been working on as separated pieces there.

Great stuff, especially the elephant and the guys flying next to the car, and yeh,
the man dancing with the stick! I didn't really catch what the sketches of girls
were doing in the animation reel, didn't really fit there in my opinion...but hey, we
like girls, so who cares... :)

Lumie
01-17-2006, 01:40 PM
Great Work! Very inspiring! Goto get back into animation myself! It's been to too long since i got that good feeling of pulling of a nice move with a character.... Your reel considered i guess you get that feeling a lot!

Keep it up mate! Again, great work!

Very nice work,
are you looking for work? or . . .

btw: i heard that the elephant feet were actually dancers feet with little elephant booties, and that you guys matched the top half of the elephant to the feet...
Im guessing from your comments, thats not true.

its very nice work..

hi

really gooooooodddd. I hope can make something like that a days,I really love character animating can you advise me how can I start?

Sorry, I know I'm not the source you wanted the info from, but I'm gonna give it a try!

For starters, learn the basics of animation through studying the classical prinicpals. You might wanna check these links:

Antics - Animation 101 (http://www.anticz.com/animatio.htm) The principals of classical animamation
Richard Williams - The Animator's Survival Kit (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0571202284/sr=1-1/qid=1137570725/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-5865439-3644039?%5Fencoding=UTF8) Great book of animation
Disney's Illusion of Life Animation (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0786860707/ref=pd_bxgy_img_b/002-5865439-3644039?%5Fencoding=UTF8) The bible of animation

Why don't you put some shots of Singing in the ring in your reel?
I like this TVC a lot.

andersonko

to pisces3d (http://member.php?u=166971)!

I totally agree with kamsvag (http://member.php?u=149) about those sources,
like The Animator's Survival Kit (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0571202284/sr=1-1/qid=1137570725/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-5865439-3644039?%5Fencoding=UTF8)
and Disney's Illusion of Life Animation (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0786860707/ref=pd_bxgy_img_b/002-5865439-3644039?%5Fencoding=UTF8)
I love those 2 books a lot and I think it will help you
to get understanding everything about animation.

Excellently put together...it had a dance to it...nice flow.

But I suggest you take out the drawings...they're only ones that don't fit what you're trying to communicate to us...you'd put drawings in your website...under drawings...animation demo reels are that ... animation demo reels.

Other than that....swell.:thumbsup:

Amazing animation.
Elephant is also fantasticly lit, with great feel to it, like it comes from future feature movie "Jungle story"!
And dancing guy would be even better even you have time to make him full character, so that even non CG people can understand it...
I also think that first frame is leting you down, and it's worse from all other great work you have on the real. I guess you have some emotional attachment to it, but it would be better to put elephant or dancing men on first frame...

Great work! Disney classical animators would be very very proud of you!:thumbsup::applause::buttrock:

Yo buddy,
Thank you for asking :)
I am pretty good here. Although I am not in a real 3D field, I still have many different things to learn. However,I still have some chance to create some simple 3D stuff in my project. It is a handy tool that I would never just leave it there.. :thumbsup:
No matter what,let's do our best in our carrer. :beer:

02-21-2006, 12:50 PM
great reel mate ^^ and yeah, the dancing character is top pick in that one, with the elephant a close second ;)

Not sure about displaying your life drawing though, I feel they should be put on a seperate real. But you did put them at the end so you might get away with it :D

Hi Bro,Top of Top

U're really doing very very very~~well. Congratulation to U!!

U can really touch deep inside of the characters so that we can feel they are live. As we're watching ur work, just feel like to enjoy. So I prefer to enjoy not to criticize. Although U're very good now, I still wish U can do a Best of Best.

Brother~ you are really amazing! I know you will become a master someday~
Hope you get into Pixar in the future~
I also think that background music has confilicts with those commercials dialogue.
That's the only thing I dont like about...other then that~ You are my master and mentor~
